One other point that defies believability. Not only did those districts show 100% votes for Obama, in many cases they also showed that 100% of registered voters came out and voted. I'm not even talking about the old Chicago habit of having more than 100% of registered voters voting in an election. so, nobody had to work late, or was out of town or was busy doing other things? Not one single person forgot to vote? Not one single person had another opinion that could be expressed in a voting booth if not on a public street or in a coffee shop? That doesn't pass the smell test, nor does it correspond to anything I learned in my various statistics classes in college.

Which is why the recent election doesn't defy logic - sadly.
